About the Property
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)
The decor is modern and relaxed, with comfort in mind throughout. The spacious front bedroom has a queen-size bed while the larger rear bedroom has a queen and twin bunks. In the summertime, the beds are fitted with lightweight duvets, with cozy wool blankets added during the colder season. New mattresses and pads make for comfortable support.
The open-plan kitchen has new appliances and a spacious breakfast bar, and the adjacent dining area seats six. The toasty gas fireplace and large sliding glass door to the deck make this a perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes with a cup of cocoa and a view of the snow laden pines.
The welcoming but uncluttered living room includes a comfortable double sleeper sofa. We have a TV, DVD, Roku box with video games, and loads of movies, books, games and puzzles to enjoy, plus free WiFi if you really must stay in touch.
In the evening, put your grilling skills to test on the spacious deck, complete with dining and lounge furniture and gas barbecue. Steaks under the stars!
We're ideally located in the desired Lakemont Pines neighborhood with its wonderful private lake for swimming, fishing or just floating your boat. Full guest privileges during the mid-June to Labor Day summer season (including horseshoes, volleyball, children's playground, lodge, snack shack, loaner kayaks and more) are included with your rental. You can enjoy the lake off-season, too! If you're in the mood for a hike, the trail-head into the national forest is just at the end of our road, and the lake is easy walking distance from the bottom of our lot.
If you've never been to the Arnold area, you're in for a treat! Ideally located in the Stanislaus National Forest, we are 30 minutes from Bear Valley Ski Resort to the north, and 20 minutes from the charming gold rush town of Murphys, with its wine tasting rooms, boutique shopping and gourmet restaurants. Also nearby are Columbia State Park, a preserved gold rush community; Calaveras Big Trees State Park and its giant sequoias; and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, not to mention golf, winery tours, cave tours, zip lines, horseback riding and more! If you're in the mood to enjoy nature, we are steps away from a trail-head into the national forest, and on to the Arnold Rim Trail, designed for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians, and Yosemite Valley is only two hours to the south.
Arnold weather is ideal for all-season fun! The warmest months are June through September, with average temps in the perfect upper 70s - low 80s range. The cabin is shady and cool even on the hottest days, and the lake water temp is in the mid-70s. Ski season normally begins in December and carries through mid-April. Because we're at 4,000 feet, we get the postcard views without the heavy snow load of the folks farther up the hill, which means easier access during the snow season. And spring and fall are normally in the 55 - 65 range -- perfect for checking out the fall foliage in Ebbetts Pass, or visiting Yosemite without the crowds.
**PLEASE NOTE** We do not charge a cleaning fee! Instead, we require our guests to do a light clean before leaving, including wiping down bath and kitchen surfaces, beds made, and floors swept/vacuumed/lightly mopped as needed. This does include taking out your trash and emptying the vacuum if needed. We also do a deep clean as needed.
Refundable pet fee: We have received complaints from the neighbors about barking dogs. In the case of complaints or damage, your fee will not be refunded. Refunds are at the discretion of the owner. Pets should not be left unattended at the cabin unless crated with the cabin windows closed to avoid damage and disrupting the peace of the neighborhood.
Refunds/Cancellations: We cannot offer any refunds within 30 days of the first night of your stay, for any reason.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

Pet fee will be refunded in full unless we receive a report of damage or a complaint from the neighbors about barking. Dogs should not be left unattended at any time unless crated with cabin windows closed to avoid damage and disturbing the peace of the neighborhood. Refunds are at the sole discretion of the owner.

We're right between Bear Valley skiing to the north and gold country and wineries just down the hill. There's something for everyone, and only 2 1/2 hours from the Bay Area!
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Elis grew up camping in the woods of northern California, and as a busy mom and university administrator, loves the tranquility of reading a good book on the deck before anyone's awake. Lucas is also a reader and enjoys the many books, games, and puzzles at the cabin, as well as swimming in the lake and skiing at Bear Valley.
Why the Owner Chose Arnold, CA, USA:
Arnold is ideally located, with loads of activities but plenty of peace and quiet. Perfectly situated just above the snow line, there's usually enough of the white stuff for a winter postcard view, and summers are nice and toasty.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When Elis bought the cabin in 2011, it was badly in need of a makeover. She saw nothing but potential. After plenty of hard work with the help of family and friends, she is proud to welcome guests to enjoy the results. Updates continue, with new area rugs and bathroom improvements on the way!
